Step Up In Trip Proves Just The Trick For Mastercraftsman Colt
A step up in trip saw Fandabidozi (2c Mastercraftsman - Cranky Spanky, by Spectrum) make it third time lucky in Monday’s ten furlong maiden at Newcastle.
Having made his first two starts over seven furlongs, the Mark Johnston-trained colt also enjoyed a change of tactics on return; making all under Connor Beasley. Clear approaching the three furlong marker, the chesnut was ridden from over a furlong out and kept on well to hold off Cherokee Dance by three parts of a length on the line.
Bred by Angelo Robiati, Fandabidozi is a full-brother to Group 3 winning juvenile Dessertoflife (Mastercraftsman).
